The Honda Activa has been one of the best selling automatic scooters in the 125cc segment and today, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India has announced an all new version.
The 2017 version of the Activa is priced at Rs 56,954 (ex-showroom Delhi) and comes with pretty much the same design, but it also includes an Automatic Headlamp On (AHO). The major change here is that the new version is now BS-4 compliant.
Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President – Sales and Marketing, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Activa 125 is the No. 1 selling 125cc automatic scooter of India with over 6 lakh customers and counting. Invigorating the segment once again, Honda’s Activa 125 is now the first automatic scooter in India to meet both the AHO and BS-IV norms. Having completely new Frontastic looks with a compelling combination of new LED position lights and chrome chest, the new Alloy variant and added convenience features; we are confident that the all new Activa 125 will strengthen its leadership even more in 2017-18.”
The new Activa 125 gets a mobile charging socket and a retractable hook at the front adding convenience. It still gets a 125cc engine that produces 8.52 bhp at 6,500rpm and 10.544 Nm at 5,000rpm, mated to a CVT unit. You also get Honda's patented Combi Braking system (CBS) with an Equaliser system.
The Equaliser balances the braking inputs on both the wheels, thereby reducing stopping distances and keeps the balance maintained. Honda will offer the new variant in five colours, including a new Matte Crust Metallic colour.

Alloy Drum (With CBS) Rs 58,900
